Theatre professor with 10 years of teaching experience offers audition coaching and classes

Methodology

Throughout my teaching, I am focused on the individual and listening to the ways they best learn. In theater, I often teach and direct through asking questions of what makes sense to the actor. By asking insightful questions, and helping students explore their answers in greater depth, I help people find their way to understand their own interpretations of texts with their own voices.

Background

I am an actor/director/teacher who has taught at the college level for 10 years who is now settling into Philadelphia to offer acting, improv, audition technique, and voice and movement lessons. I have also taught writing at the college level and can assist with grammar, organization, and other nuts-and-bolts skills.
